The balloon boy incident ties right in with this Jon and Kate nonsense. Even after it was discovered that he was not in the balloon, the cable news channels were still reporting it like it was a major new story. And after it was revealed that it was all a hoax, the coverage got even bigger. This is what the television media has been reduced to. Same with Jon and Kate. The more they blab, the more the media eats it up. Even with all the scandal, TLC is still determined to keep this show going with Kate. Why? It defies decency and common sense. And so you have these parents who want fame and money no matter what the price, and a shameless and stupid media that chases right after them.
